The Ryzen 3900X CPU has been out since July 2019 and getting your hands on one that wasn’t overpriced was a challenge. I waited it out for inventory to pick back up and finally got my hands on one of these beauties. The Ryzen 9 3900X is the first consumer CPU to have a 12 core 24 thread count. In easy to understand terms, it’s wicked fast. With a price point of $499 USD, the price per performance is a tremendous value. Adding into the mix that the CPU runs on the AM4 platform, the chip will fit in most of the AMD boards available.
Hello everyone! Jim here from Skjool’s Tech Talk, back with another video on the new-ish Ryzen 3900X processor. There have been a great number of videos on the Ryzen 3900X since launch and in this video, I’m not doing the full upgrade that most channels have done. going to x570 boards with specific RAM, CPU coolers, and M.2 hard drives. This video is what most of us will be looking to do. A straight upgrade from the current processor in our PC’s.
Check out the video on how to upgrade your CPU and some tests ran against the current CPU in my PC, the Ryzen 2700X.
Upgrading X470 board with the Ryzen 3900X
A few things I want to add. If you are currently on the Ryzen platform, make sure you update the bios to your motherboard. There have been instances where the new CPU will not boot up. If you are doing a new build, grab the bios for the board you are buying from the manufacturer’s website. This will save you a few headaches.
Hopefully, you got some value from the video! I try to give you the best information to make a purchasing decision. If you have any questions or comments, you can leave them here, on Lords of Gaming Twitter account, my Twitter account (@skoolstechtalk), or over on my YouTube channel. I make my best effort to answer all the questions. If I don’t know the answer, I’ll find someone that does and get right back to you!
